Created over a series of months, Japanese artist Kumi Yamashita has crafted intricate portraits using individual unbroken sewing thread wrapped around a network of galvanized nails. Developed as part of her constellation collection titled ‘Mana #2′, the highly intricate multidimensional textures of the compositions bring out a realistic and almost organic quality to the faces.
